A new and, dare we say, unexpected player is now reportedly in the running to play the leading role of Anastasia Steele in the incredibly-anticipated â€śFifty Shades of Greyâ€ť movie. Butting heads with a number of qualified actresses, such as â€śTwilightâ€™sâ€ť Kristen Stewart, Alexis Bledel of â€śGilmore Girls,â€ť former Disney star Selena Gomez, and Mila Kunis of â€śThat 70s Show,â€ť MTVâ€™s La La Anthony has recently expresses her desire for the part.
The payoff for playing such a racy role, says Anthony, would be more than worth it. "That book spread like wildfire everywhere,â€ť she says. â€śIt went from one person knowing about it to every person you ran into talking about it... so if the opportunity came, I'd do it.â€ť
The question still remains: who will play the leading male role of Christian Grey alongside one of these ladies?
The film adaptation of E.L. James' novel â€ś50 Shades of Greyâ€ť is set to be released August 1, 2014.
